Because ESPN focuses on there sports teams and the sports they think are the best. For example, 65% of their sports center broadcast is NBA, 25% is NFL and 10% is NHL when these 3 sports are all active. NBA gets so much attention because they are a struggling league that ESPN is partners with. The NHL gets the least amount of attention because they favore MLB, NFL, NBA more then the NHL.
